Planning applications for hundreds of homes at Donald Trump's Aberdeenshire golf resort have been lodged.

The Trump Organisation wants to build 850 permanent homes and 1,900 holiday homes at Menie.

It follows applications made last week for a ballroom and a staff accommodation building at the resort.

The businessman previously said a hotel and second course would only proceed if a planned wind farm off the coast was rejected.

Meanwhile, an 18-month refurbishment programme at Mr Trump's Turnberry resort is under way.

The US billionaire bought the course and hotel in Ayrshire last year.
